Ramiro Luz, Manager of Corporate Business in the South American branch of LinkedIn, talks about "hard skills" and "soft skills". He says: "To advance in a professional career and reach leadership positions you need a combination of two characteristics: technical and / or market knowledge (the 'hard skills') and soft skills - such as resistance to frustration, ability to adjust quickly to the changes, to understand the needs of other people (the 'soft skills')".

In the Sala Felix of the Four Seasons Hotel, in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Recoleta, an event called "Young Leadership" will be held, organized by Infobae. Nine speakers - moderated by the journalist Luis Novaresio - will present their knowledge and views on the training and encouragement of workers and employers and the new paradigm of the labor market.

Ramiro Luz of LinkedIn explained, by case, what young people need to become leaders: "They are already quite well prepared in 'hard skills': they have an unprecedented level of access to information and they are digital natives. The combination of these skills with good 'soft skills' may be what will make the difference for them to move into leadership positions."

In a dialogue with Infobae, he said that the arrival of platforms like LinkedIn coincides with the incorporation of new generations into the labor market, and explained what are the interests of millennial workers: "This new professional seeks beyond a labor relationship focused on rewards financial institutions, he also hopes to find in his potential employer a purpose for the work he does and an impact on society."

In the first block of exponents that will start at eleven o'clock in the morning, Luz will share a panel with Carlos Álvarez, CTO of Despegar. "Our company was created by entrepreneurs," he said, and conceded what characteristics they look for in young workers: "The most important skill is the ability to learn and the willingness to continue learning."

Consulted by the conditions that young people need to become leaders, the technology director of the travel company said: "I believe that leadership skills are learned, I do not think that technique is learned and leadership is not. we have a brain that works like a zeroing machine, which determines that if you are very good with technical skills you can not be good with people, or vice versa, we believe that if you are a person with potential, you can be good at everything and our plan in learning reflects that."

There will be nine full-room speakers: more than 250 people are expected to attend. The appointment is Friday, May 18th, 2018, at the Four Seasons Hotel.

They will also integrate the first segment of the meeting, Noelia Ruiz, Chief of Cabinet of the Cabinet Ministry of the Province of Buenos Aires, who will comment on her experience as a young leader and as a team trainer in government programs; and Juan Pablo Scasserra, president of IDEA Joven of the Institute for Business Development of Argentina, who will provide his vision as representative of a space for dialogue aimed at young professionals.

Around midday the second segment of the meeting will open, with another five speakers: Tomás Karagozian, member and authority of UIA Joven, Gastón Podesta, Global Geographic Director of Human Resources of Accenture, Alejandro Anderlic, Director of Legal and Corporate Affairs of Microsoft Argentina , Sergio Pivetti, manager of Human Resources of Arcos Dorados Argentina, and Soledad Martínez, councilor of Vicente López.

In this second and last block, the representatives of companies and organizations related to the professionalization of new workers will speak about the strategies of inclusion and training of young leaders. They will tell their experiences and unveil keys in the training and development of the most inexperienced and enthusiastic workforce.
